So I finally found the time to make a video with my crappy digital camera. Beware the horrible squeals that scare the cats into hiding and drive the neighbours crazy! But as you will see I'm having fun and really can't stay serious and even tries singing (oh my ears). Please give advice my friends if I can correct a few things for my second week playing the fiddle I'll be a happy woman!

Noirs, that was fun! You seem to be taking very well to the violin. I can't critique because I haven't posted a video yet, but you look very comfortable with the instrument, as far as your chin rest and your handling of the bow and left hand, not like me when I first started. Keep up the good work!  cheerleader

Wow, girl..... that was great.  You told me early this morning you were going to do it, and you did.  YAYYYYYYYY. Remember chatting with me. Fiddleandbow.

Exellent job for one week, you even played some of your own song.

Very Good! Love that attitude! =) XD cheerleader

And i like You singing amuse. You have a good posture and i think that You feel quite comfortable with the violin =)

 Only one thing botheres me right now: your left hand a bit low from the violin try to lift it up a little to make fiddle touch your hand approximately in this area :

It will help You later to play on D and G strings more comfortable =)

 

Also bringing the elbow under the violin will help =)

 

Happy to see You!~!  Thank You for the video! And Happy fiddling!

thumbs-up

A trip of laughter to take us away from boring... It is hard to explain the euphemism... I think it dates back to the sixties and flower children, but I am too young and innocent to know anything about that!pink-violin-girl

Thanks for the advice Mad_Wed, I move my handle position a lot, sometimes it's like you show but sometimes my thumb goes under. I think I am still trying to find the correct spot hehee so many things to remember! I was NOT having a good posture, was sitting on my piano bench with my legs extended and crossed over the ankle, I usually play standing up but I felt lazy :p

Dionysia, 1 week is not miles ahead lol, I practice 30 min to 1h per day (but I skip days depending on how busy I am).

Finding the correct spot for the notes is HARD but I still refuse to use tape even though I know it would make playing easier.

We use trip also in québécois, like "on a  trippé!" (we tripped) meaning we had lots of fun. And thanks for laughing with me on my video guys, it's fun to be a noob! In a couple years I will probably roll on the floor watching this.

Great video NV! I especially love the pop-up commentary. roflI'm far from an expert as a noob myself, but your intonation sounded very good to me. Glad you're having fun with this. Keep up the good work!

thumbs-up

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

Exactly. I thought the skulls were part of your hair before I played the video.

Super entertaining. I liked it so much that I watched it twice.
Yes Naska is a trip but NoirVelours is a runner up, I can tell. LOL

You are an inspiration to all the beginners. Keep it up. And btw, it is not easy to sing and play at the same time. Many cannot do it.

Thanks for the post.

Wow sounds great!

I am no expert but you bow looked a little too tight. 

 

Wish I was doing so well after my first month.
